the cup and saucer

goodwill pfaltzgraff cup saucer

My mom has had the Pfaltzgraff Village dish set for as long as I can remember. Every now and then I discover a piece of the set at a thrift store and wonder if I should buy it to supplement her collection. (Obviously, I owe it to her… I surely broke my fair share of dishes while living under her roof.) I picked up this cup and saucer at Goodwill (bargained for the deal, of course) and I’m a little tempted to keep it for myself. Sometimes I want to collect cups and saucers and then I remember there is no place to display them in my mini apartment.

Side note about this cup: Growing up, we would use these instead of bowls for eating ice cream. I’m not sure why — maybe because they’re small and we were small? Whenever I visit home I still use this size dish for ice cream. It’s sort of like a portion control tactic, except usually it means I eat two cups’ worth.

    Kenzie, start looking at Goodwill or antique markets and you will find some!

    Also, oversize cereal bowls and plates are due to our obese society. Dish sizes have grown over time, so it makes sense that mom’s older dishes seem mini compared to the newer sets you and I both have.
